The royal dynasty of the Fanes


One night, Moltina and her husband were woken by a sudden noise. It was the Fanes, the “most ancient people ever”, who had lived in the area around Cortina since time immemorial.

The Fanes were training their troops, without knowing the basics of military strategies. The prince, who knew how to fight in a war, accepted to train them and lead them against their enemies. The Fanes won the battle and the prince was crowned king.

The king ordered that a stronghold be built and he had a marmot painted on its walls as an emblem. The Fanes royal dynasty descended from Moltina and the King; the anguana that had raised Moltina foretold they would have a future full of glory and greatness.
